On May 20, Xin Guobin, member of the party group and vice minister of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, went to China Automobile Dealers Association to investigate the situation of the automobile industry chain. On-site video link China FAW Group Co., Ltd. and Beijing Xianglong Borui Automobile Service (Group) Co., Ltd. to understand the production and sales of the front line, and dispatch the Shanghai Economic and Information Commission and the Jilin Provincial Department of Industry and Information Technology to resume work and production. Work, listen to the reports of the China Automobile Dealers Association and the China Automobile Industry Association on the operation of the industrial economy and policy recommendations.
Xin Guobin pointed out that due to factors such as the spread of the new crown pneumonia epidemic, my country's automobile production and sales fell sharply in April compared with the same period last year, and the rapid growth of new energy vehicles has slowed down. The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology resolutely implemented the decisions and deployments of the Party Central Committee and the State Council, and took prompt action in conjunction with relevant localities and departments to organize the establishment of the "Automotive Industry Chain Supply Chain Smooth Coordination Platform", establish a ministry-province (city) collaborative linkage mechanism, and cumulatively promote solutions More than 4,000 batches of corporate logistics, transportation and resumption of work and production have been carried out, actively opening up the blocking points of the industrial chain and supply chain for automobile enterprises. With the joint efforts of all parties concerned, the resumption of work and production in the auto industry has achieved phased results, auto production and sales are gradually recovering, and the momentum for bottoming out is gathering. According to the statistics of the Passenger Car Market Information Joint Conference, from May 1 to 15, the national retail sales of passenger cars was 483,000 units, a year-on-year decrease of 21%, a decrease of 13 percentage points from the same period last month.
Xin Guobin emphasized that the automobile industry is an important pillar industry of the national economy, with a long industrial chain, extensive coverage, and strong driving force. Currently facing the "two-way pressure" of blocked supply and weakened demand, we must adhere to "demand pulling first, supply and demand on both sides". "Strength", reverse the downward trend as soon as possible, and provide strong support for stabilizing the economic market. First, we must actively promote consumption. In accordance with the deployment of the CPC Central Committee and the State Council, we will promptly study policies and measures to stabilize and expand automobile consumption, continue to increase the promotion and application of new energy vehicles, accelerate the recovery of automobile consumption, and use demand to drive supply to achieve a virtuous circle. Second, we must make every effort to stabilize production, continue to play the role of the smooth coordination platform and the central-local linkage mechanism, continue to improve the "white list" system, promote the coordinated resumption of production and production in the upstream and downstream of automobiles, strengthen the work of ensuring the supply of automobile chips and stabilizing the price of bulk raw materials, and fully protect the industry. The supply chain is smooth and stable.
Xin Guobin said that my country is both the world's largest automobile producer and the world's largest consumer, with a complete industrial system, diverse market demands, and strong economic recovery and self-circulation capabilities. Under the strong leadership of the Party Central Committee and the State Council, and with the joint efforts of the entire industry, with the effectiveness of epidemic prevention and control and the introduction of relevant support policies, my country's auto industry will surely be able to overcome difficulties and achieve stable and healthy development.
Relevant responsible comrades from the General Office of the Ministry, the Operation Monitoring and Coordination Bureau, and the First Division of Equipment Industry participated in the research discussion.
